for everybody. in the current news center. >> good morning, everybody! president obama is meeting with business leaders again today to talk about the consequences of going over the fiscal cliff. he's also claiming to call on congressional leaders to make sure we raise the debt ceiling without contention. the white house making the case that extending the bush tax cuts for the middle class is directly connected to the health of our businesses. companies need to know consumers will be able to spend and in his first post-election interview president obama again rejected the house republican counteroffer that is on the table. >> unfortunately the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. we're going to have to see the rates on the top 2% go up and we're not going to be able to get a deal without it. >> let's hope he sticks to it. >> g.o.p. leaders aren't only dealing with the president and congressional democrats they're dealing with a split within their own ranks. more conservative republicans don't want part

across the country once people saw obama tour new jersey. that was it. that was just -- everything else was out the window. all of the -- you know, allegations about four years of obama being a socialist and a monster and all of that stuff was just apparently evaporated because of the hurricane. also rove was pushing that nonsense last week. obviously rove and morris have the most explaining to do. >> stephanie: and o'reilly. apparently there's one now and only because of hurricane sandy. >> he went on -- o'reilly went on leno and was explaining last week romney just disappeared after the hurricane hit. the last week. interesting point he said he would have had romney on for the entire hour, you know, the night before the election. they made that offer. they made it to obama. but o'reilly couldn't get romney on his show and would have given romney an entire hour the night before the election. so he says -- basically you know, if you come on my show, he would have won. if there hadn't been a hurricane, he wou
and a conversation with julianna goldman of bloomberg news who did the first interview with president obama since the election. >> he seem a little tired. he seem a little frustrated at the pace of how these negotiations are going but he also came across as a cool call no drama obama that we've come to know from him as a candidate and as president. and he really was very firm. we kept trying to push him on this tax issue, and he looks like he has learned the lesson from various debt negotiations, gej talks and the negotiations of 2011 and he's not giving an inch for the top tax earners expiring this year. >> rose: we conclude this evening with a conversation with stuart stevens former chief strategist and advisor to governor mitt romney and the romney campaign. >> working for governor romney was an extraordinary privilege. and it really was an arne. and i think that he was in this race for the right reasons. he was in it out of a sense of what he could do for the country. to be a small part of that was a great privilege. but i think that republicans need to, we have a good menial, we have to do
it working again. u.s. officials confirmed that syrian forces have confirmed scuffles. that is the news. >>> welcome back to "hardball." there was a hint of movement on the fiscal cliff deal between president obama and speaker boehner yesterday. here's where things stand for now. the white house sent over a proposal that lowered the revenue target for the president obama from $1.6 trillion to $1.6 trillion. he also increased spending cuts to $600 billion. so you have three things he's moving on there. speaker boehner was not impressed sending over his original offer of $800 billion in revenue. by the way that was the number last summer, summer of '11. acknowledged there's a long way to go. let's listen to him. >> i remain the most optimistic person in this town, but we've got some serious differences. the president and i had a pretty frank conversation about just how far apart we are. >> and in an interview with barbara walters, the president held firm and said time is running out. >> taxes are going to go up one way or the other. and i think the key is to make sure that taxes go up on
. these are states that obama won last time. iowa. ohio. new hampshire. pennsylvania. wisconsin. and minnesota. >> bill: he said 325. he was only off by 1. right? because the winner got 326. oops, that's right the winner was barack obama not mitt romney. so what about karl rove and dick morris? michael calderone is the senior media reporter for "huffington post" joining us on our news line this morning. michael, we're not going to see him for awhile, huh? >> yes. i think -- i know you're missing him. but i don't think we'll see these guys for a little while. >> bill: here's the deal. i was chatting with some of our friends in the media last night at the white house is this roger ailes just kind of playing games and a little -- this is just a temporary retrieve because people aren't that interested in presidential politics anymore but they'll stay around and they'll be eventually be back on fox? >> well, say what you will about roger ailes. we know he's a genius when it comes to programming and trying to shif
connell has stopped being a real conservative and is being a guy that wants to bring down obama. anyway, the new nbc poll shows democratic party approval higher than republican. approval of the democrats 44%. of republicans 30%. it shows that 59% that president obama has a mandate to eliminate tax cuts for the rich. how do you look at that, chip? that's solid that 59%. how can the republicans on the hill deny it? >> well, we lost a major -- we lost a national election, obviously. we didn't gain control of the senate. we did get control of the house. president obama is the guy that beat us. and so they're riding high right now. and they have framed this issue about tax increases on the rich. and as i jokingly say when you polled 98% of the people they always agree tax the other guys. and when we -- >> i know. don't tax me. tax the guy behind the tree. let me ask you a question. you're a great guest. would mike huckabee had won this general election if he was the nominee? >> i'm biased, but i think he would have had an opportunity to win and beat obama for one simple reason. he's a conser
goldman of bloomberg news obama called the boehner plan quote out of balance. >> i think that we have the potential of getting a deal done, but it's going to require what i talked about during the campaign which is a balanced responsible approach to deficit reduction that can help give businesses certainty and make sure that the country grows. and unfortunately the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. he talks for example about $800 billion worth of revenues but he says he's going to do that by lowering rates. when you look at the math, it doesn't work. >> rose: and here is the president talking about why it's essential for him that there be tax increases for the most wealthy among us. >> i don't think that the issue right now has to do with sitting in a room. the issue right now that's relevant is the acknowledgment that if we're going to raise revenues that are sufficient to balance with the very tough cuts that we've already made and further reforms and entitlements that i'm prepared to make, that we're going to have to see the rates on the top 2% go up. and we're
hit with hefty new taxes to help fund president obama's signature health care law. the taxes that kick in starting january 1st. and .9% increase in the payroll tax on wages over $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples. also a new 3.8% tax on investment income for those individuals earning $200,000 and couples earning $250,000. the estimated impact on these top earners, tax increases next year averaging $6,000. joining me to dig a little deeper on this, "washington post" and bloomberg view come ummist ezra klein who's also an msnbc policy analyst. we've hardly heard anything about all of this. why haven't more people opposed to the raising of income tax rates on the highest earners used this as an argument against hitting people with this double whammy, so to speak? >> when it was going through they were arguing about it more broadly. it did get mentioned on and off. republicans said -- they would often say $500 billion in taxes. they mentioned it. it was couched in this broader argument over the bill. once it passed it was done. people in washington tend to argue over what th

, this is, this is is a headline from "the new york times." even if republicans were to agree to mr. obama's core demand that the top marginal income rates return to the clinton-era levels of 36%, 39.6% after december 21st, the article goes on to say, the additional revenue would be only about a quarter of the $1.6 trillion that mr. obama wants to collect over ten years. why should republicans agree do that. if it's not going to generate enough revenue, congressman? >> well, it's a down payment on the deal. we want to make sure that middle class taxes don't go up by $2,000 january 1st. that's something that i feel the president feels, republicans and democrats should agree on. that's what we can realistically get done in the next few weeks. a straight up or down vote on the senate bill. we have a discharge petition to bring it to the floor of the house to renew the middle class tax cuts. this will continue in terms of figuring out how to balance the budget. but in the meantime, let's not take $2,000 away from every middle class family. >> let's assume you guys get the rate that you're look
with the congressman. that it gets it off the table. you get into the new year and you bring the big fight on. and entitlement reform, the real money to the debt ceiling debate in late january or february. that's still where we're at. that's no matter what president obama says, about whether or not he's going to play that game or not. republicans believe 70% of the country is with him on a debt ceiling increase and they're happy to have that fight. so you really are, the possibility ultimately of us going off the cliff is very high. because i think both parties are happy to let it happen. and have a new fight in january for different political reasons. >> ed, we saw and heard from tennessee senator bob corker say he is okay with raising tax rates. but at the end of the day, it only matters what john boehner can get the house republicans to accept. last week the speaker indicated he might be okay with raising rates, he backtracked a few hours later. what's the appetite right now for raising those rates? is that something that's going to be an easier sell for john boehner than a lot of folks th
to reduce the deficit, 63% said no. 86% of the ads run for obama were personal attacks on romney. he won a stunning mandate to not be romney. he did not run on the basis he was going to do massive new spending and the kind of tax increases, $1.6 trillion that he's now talking about. and at the same time that obama was elected president, the republican house, which had twice voted for a real budget -- remember, the president's budget he claims he has a mandate for was put up before the house and the democrats all voted against it. in the senate, the democrats didn't want to have anything to do with it. it's a little hard to argue, he had a mandate for something the rest of his party ran away from. >> well -- >> did not run ads on those issues. >> and, of course, it was a bit more complicated than that. but to your point about the exit polls, it's true, most people said that they didn't want tax increases to solve the deficit. what they said -- the majority, was they wanted both balanced. they wanted cuts and tax increases. which is what both john boehner and the president -- in very strid

know, this is a, a great frustration, obviously. you can understand the new president obama with a different point of view than many of us hoping that through his intelligence and personality and different point of view that maybe the russians would be receptive to a new approach which is sort of the anti-bush approach. you can understand why he might think he could succeed at that. and, therefore, try this out. so i'm not criticizing him for trying. you can question whether he should reasonably have come to that conclusion, but nonetheless, he tried it. i hope that he is shrewd enough to appreciate that it has failed, it is not likely to succeed because of a variety of reasons and that you can't keep going down the path chasing after somebody that doesn't want anything to do with you right now without doing damage to yourself, and you can see a lot of examples where that's occurred. just to cite one example, the very difficult situation that has been created with the czech republic, with poland, with our missile defense system which i would argue is now pretty well shredded
